Leonardo DiCaprio Launches Race Car Team with Venturi!

Leonardo DiCaprio has helped launch the new Venturi Grand Prix Formula E Team, which will race in the world’s first fully-electric race series beginning in September 2014.

Formula E is a new FIA Championship using electric single-seater race cars capable of speeds in excess of 225km/h. The series will compete in the heart of 10 of the world’s leading cities including Beijing, Los Angeles and London.

“The future of our planet depends on our ability to embrace fuel-efficient, clean-energy vehicles,” Leo said in a statement. “Venturi Grand Prix has shown tremendous foresight in their decision to create an environmentally friendly racing team, and I am happy to be a part of this effort.”
